CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's KFC-Ya Later Bowl!
A Bowl in One!
A ginormous bowl that includes fried items, corn niblets, gravy and cheese
cannot POSSIBLY be Hungry Girl approved, can it? Ummmm, YES it can. We
promise! Our swapped-out version of this Kentucky Fried MESS will save you
more than half the calories and most of the fat. We rock! But we must
confess, this recipe was inspired by one of our faithful subscribers, who
emailed in to tell us that she and her boyfriend make their own version of
these bowls at home. Thanks, Angie!
1 cup cubed butternut squash
1 oz. skim milk
2 tbsp. canned corn niblets; heated
1/2 oz. fat-free cheese, cheddar or American; shredded
2 oz. Heinz Fat Free Classic Chicken Gravy; heated
1 Morningstar Farms Chik Patty, Original
salt and pepper; to taste
In a covered dish, microwave butternut squash pieces for 4 - 6 minutes (until
tender) in a very small amount of water. Drain and then mash squash with
the skim milk and a little salt. Place mashed squash in a medium-sized bowl.
Next, sprinkle corn niblets over your squash. Prepare "chicken" patty
according to package and cut into small pieces. Place patty pieces on top of
your corn-topped squash. Drizzle with gravy. Top with shredded cheese and
Serving size: 1 bowl (entire recipe)
KFC's Famous Bowl, Mashed Potato
Out of Control Bowl!
When we first saw the commercials on TV for KFC's Famous Bowls, several
things crossed our minds. First, we wondered how a brand-new offering could
be called "famous" right out of the gate (a tad presumptuous, no?). Then, our
curiosity turned to sheer DISGUST as we watched the fatty ingredients PILE
up before our horrified eyes. Mashed potatoes, buttery corn, gravy, fried
chicken AND cheese!?! Yikes! Was this some sort of joke? As unfunny as this
monstrosity of a "meal" is, we have to admit it does look pretty delicious
(sorry, it just does). That being said, we're not suggesting you do something
CRAZY like order one of these from the Colonel (eek!). Instead, just throw
together one of HG's KFC-Ya Later Bowls at home. You'll save oodles of
calories and fat grams. Yay!
